I would have thought that poisoning any birds would be illegal?  Any creature or child could pick it up?

What I said was that it is OK to put down poison to get rid of rats, quite legally - so why not something legal to get rid of seagulls which are another pest?

Rat poison should only be put down in "Rat Runs" and not left lying on the ground for any animal or child or person to have access.

Here we go again.........

"A special seagull committee could be set up by Conwy Council"
"Conwy’s communities scrutiny committee will debate the pros and cons, and suggest a new committee to look at the problem"
"Setting up a task and finish group to look at “other possible options, including undertaking research of what is being done in other areas of the country”.

Conwy wants SEAGULL committee to tackle problem of divebombing birds
A special seagull committee could be set up by Conwy Council to work out how to deal with the marauding birds – without ruffling the feathers of any religious groups.

Divebombing gulls are a particular problem on Conwy Quay and Llandudno's North and West Shores, leaving mess and attacking people for food.
Business owners and tourists have called for something to be done about the pests and Conwy County Council had planned to bring in laws last year to fine anyone caught feeding the gulls.
That didn’t happen but, after repeating their commitment to dealing with the problem in January of this year, the council has now put the matter back on the agenda.

How about this, and we have our own CCBC Falconer, Tony Jackson from the Welsh Mountain Zoo.

"Birds of prey are a natural ‘threat’ to gulls so their presence at a location will scare and deter them from the area. As the threat is perceived as potentially lethal by the gulls it will always remain effective. It also reinforces the need for the gulls to look for an alternative site for future breeding.

Falconry works by changing the gulls pattern of behavior in an area. For example, by having a program of intensive visits for a period – usually daily for a short period –  birds of prey forces nuisance birds to change their habits quickly. A falconry programme with regular visits can be used to maintain a predatory presence to protect "
